PierFest presents - THE MIKADO by the Merry Opera Company


Gilbert & Sullivan's 


by The Merry Opera Company

Desperate to get away? Take a trip to the topsy-turvy town of Titipu in the land of Pajan! 

Find romance, chicanery and a legal conundrum under the capricious eye of the Mikado.

Nanki-Poo cannot marry Yum-Yum because she is betrothed to Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner, who cannot do his duty without executing himself.  Yet when the Mikado insists upon an execution, somehow no-one loses his head……

It is our absolute Merry pleasure to be returning to the stage with our brand new production of Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado. After an incredibly difficult year and a half, we can't think of a better way to celebrate a return to Merry form than with this surprising and high-octane romp through a beloved operetta classic, set against the backdrop of the energy and ebullience of music halls and vaudeville.

Looking forward to seeing you there! We've missed you!

A production by The Merry Opera Company, directed by John Ramster with musical direction by Bradley Wood.
